The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is a national conservation program that provides everyone the opportunity to take action in their communities wherever water meets land, one bit of trash at a time!

This citizen science conservation project tracks each piece of litter collected. Shoreline Cleanups help us to better understand the types of garbage affecting Lethbridge’s shorelines.

Remember – your shoreline starts at your front door – litter that enters storm drains at the street level will generally lead directly into the river. Cleaning up litter ANYWHERE is helpful and makes a big difference to our watershed’s health!

Want to organize your own cleanup? The Nature Centre will provide supplies and support!

Volunteer Duties

If you need supplies, visit the Helen Schuler Nature Centre anytime between 10am-12pm to pick up gloves, a bag, and data sheet, then go for a stroll and track the litter you pick up! When you are done, submit your data as part of the national Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup database.

No registration necessary, but it is encouraged.
